welcome to lorem (ipsum)!

Ipsum. A mega-city that is located beachside, with mountains and a river surrounding its expansive homes and towering buildings. The city is beyond beautiful... yet none of the residents have any idea how they arrived, and have yet to leave, because Ipsum is a city you can never leave -- not by choice. People appear here without any knowledge where they are, no one knows what country or world they are even in. Yet, the city still provides for her people. Jobs, homes, goods are all readily available, and there is a place for everyone, be it the good or bad — Ipsum shall provide.

Please make yourself at home… you will not be returning to yours any time soon.

A grandiose and clearly old Hotel that stands in the very heart of Officia, Nulla Amet has a long and harrowed tradition of opening it's doors to new residence from other worlds with no questions asked. All new comers are directed to Nulla Amet after a governmental assessment and given an assignment as to what their status is. At the Hotel, they will find a 3 fresh meals a day, hot showers and baths, plush beds, a beautiful indoor pool and a weekly stipend of credits to aid in finding a job and buying necessities. But don't get to comfortable, the stay is only free for a month, then you'll start being billed-- and Nulla Amet is not cheap.

A large, ornate plaza guarded by both Police and Military at all times, Officia Deser holds not only the New Resident Assessment Building, a place all new comers to Ipsum are directed to, but the Parliment Building and the Royal Place of the Queen of Ipsum, along with many national monuments to wars and events no one seems to remember. All new residents are required to get an assessment, under penalty of incarceration.

In the middle of sky scrapers and the hustle and bustle of city life is a park that rivals every other park the city has to offer. Totamrem is a massive park boasting not only a zoo, but miles and miles of paths that wind through it's tress, a stream, and statues to men and women no one can recall. It's a great escape from the busy city streets, and if you sit on the hills that the park offers, you can hardly fathom you're in the middle of a mega-city.

One of the largest residential areas in Ipsum, Tristique offers affordable middle class living, Upper-Middle class finding homes closer to the city than Lower, which live closer to the lake. Yet, this is a blessing in disguise, as the views of the Mattis mountains reflecting off Dolor Lake is breath taking at times. Tristique offers a spattering of stores and restaurants in their residential area, with the Nisiut Grove cutting into the district to help fight the cookie cutter house feel.

Sometimes Children are ripped from their homes by Ipsum, a sad truth that leaves many children without a place to stay. This is where Excepteur Institute has stepped in. A boarding school for all ages, from 10 to 18, offers education and board free of charge to citizens pulled from their homes and families. While school is mandatory for children under the age of 16, the Institute offers it's students a place to stay until the age of 18, where they are given a diploma and an invite to M.A.U.

Cutting between the Residential Areas, surrounding the lake, and even lifting up around the base of the mountains is a forest that houses both animals and hiking trails. Boasting most of the wildlife within the city, you could get lost in these woods for days with no hope of being found. At the base of the mountains is the Nisiut Ski Resort, whose ski trails bleed into the woods, the only clear development of the forest.

Pristine and massive, the other shore is not visible to the naked eye. The waters of the lake is where all of Ipsum gets it's water supply, with purification treatments of course. Filled by runoffs from the Mattis Mountains, Dolor offers beautiful views and great fresh water fishing, along with a mysterious creature that lurks at it's depths. Only a few have claimed to see it, but almost all of Ipsum believe it exists.

To live in Vestibulum is to be in the lap of Luxury. There are no houses here, only beach front mansions or million credit condos that all offer beach views to die for. If you wish to find yourself living among the super rich and powerful of Ipsum, you must one of two things. Zenith Standings, or a job that has you earning enough credits to be allowed in such luxuries. The Queen of Ipsum calls Vestibulum home.

Off the shores of Manga Alquia is an island, Minima Cay. It's small, only a few miles across, yet ferries take visitors three times a day for snorkelling, swimming among marine life, and a private beach experience. There is a small hotel on the island that offers a nightly stay rate in private bungalows for a pretty hefty credit. However, the ferry is affordable, and takes all those not staying the night home at 7pm sharp every night.

Living in Malesuada means one of two things-- you live on the wrong side of the law, or you are too poor to afford anything better-- or both. Only a few streets of the Residential Area in Malesuada are considered "liveable", the rest are drug dins, roofless due to falling boulders, destroyed by land slides, or just unliveable in general. Most residence are considered undesirables here. Sad, yet true.

While some buildings are still in use, like the recycling plant, the power plant and the city dump, most businesses have moved away from Malesuada. Many warehouses deeper in Malesuada are now used as living areas for gangs and the homeless, and many are used to house illegal drugs, stolen cars and goods, and even a few chop shops were a car could get you a few hundred in credit. Be careful if walking through here at night.

The borderline between Officia and Malesuada is a long street nicknamed Sin Avenue, the buildings burning red neon lights offering pleasure and an eye full for anyone passing. A person could spend a few hundred credits for a good time with a woman of the night, score some good drugs, strike it rich or lose it all in a game of cards, or enjoy a show by dancers with a good hard drink. Anyone under the age of 16 are not welcome on Sin Avenue, even the avenue's workers will escort them out.

In the middle of the west district of Ipsum, surrounded by houses all over, is the Duis Aute Cemetery. There are tombstones here that are hundreds of years old, some crumbling, some stained by time. At night, residence say they can hear screams, be it from the dead or soon-to-be dead, they won't say. There are, however, rumours of a etherial woman in white wandering the cemetery at night.

Once considered a place to send the undesirables of society, this building was the very reason for Malesuada's decline from the social structure of Ipsum. It was a place of great atrocities, and upon it's closing it set out hundreds of mentally unstable individuals onto Malesuada. It's now abandoned, and littered with both destruction from both time and residents. It is also reported to be very haunted.

Houses here are fairly inexpensive, depending on how close to the River they are. The more prone to flooding, the cheaper the home. However, each home is charming, and all houses here boast a certian charm with popped colour and quaint little yards. Children of all ages play in the streets in the evenings and the river boasts a great place to picnic, camp, or enjoy the stars at night.

Exea Square is a very arts and niche open market that offers good from all the worlds collected by Ipsum. From rare spices, to strange alien technology, to paintings done by local artist, if you can't find it anywhere else in Ipsum, it is more than likely in Exea Square. It is open sun up to sun set every day of the week, and some stalls even stay open longer. Seeing as there are hundreds upon hundreds of stalls, you are likely to find at least one thing to please your fancy.

Once built in the hopes of not only achieving air travel beyond Ipsum, but to accommodate the bigger ships and mecha of individuals that come to Ipsum, it has since been abandoned. While the hangers are still in use by many people, rented out by the government to house larger vehicles of it's citizenry, it, for the most part, is empty. It's almost an eyesore for the residence of Ligula.

To the northwest of the residential district is the Mollitanim Wall , a massive cliff that jaggedly cuts off from the Mattis' southern mountain face. From this cliff falls a beautiful waterfall into the Velitesse River. The government has taken it upon themselves to make the Mollitanim falls a bit of an attraction for Ipsum residence, by adding a light display for important dates. It's a very romantic date spot, but be careful of the currents of the river.

From the Mollitanim Wall is the start of the large, yet short river of Velitesse. This river is home to many fresh water fish, and though it is short, it is wide and has very fast and turbulent currents in the center. However, the shore is safe for all people to play, as long as they don't go out to far. The rocky shores are great for cookouts, enjoying the stars, even camping on some of the larger boulders. Many teens can be found here at night star gazing, or having a bon-fire.
